      I'm excited, cant wait to make this. I ordered grits from SC or perhaps Nc and I need every excuse to use them. This sounds great. DH is allergic to onions. Do you think it will affect the taste much? If it does I take it into consideration, and if it make a big difference I simply don't rate it since I'm changing the recipe. Leanne I've made this and it is my favourite mexican recipe Team F
